NOTE! This tutorial uses selective coloring and exclusion layers, so not translatable! :( Sorry guys

Okay so today we'll be doing this:

from this:

So let's start. :) Open up your photo, crop, resize, blur, sharpen, whatever. :D Then layer > new adjustment layer > selective coloring layer with these settings:

reds: c: -79
m: +4
y :+18
b :+7

whites: c: +59
m: +78
y: -43
b: -53

Next layer > new adjustment layer > selective coloring and apply these settings:

greens: c: +68
y: -33
m: +4
b: -52

blues: c: +86

neutrals: c: +4
m: -9
y: -16
b: +21

Next layer > new adjustment layer > curves. Put the settings like this:

1st point: output 36
input 42

2nd point: output 120
input 42

3rd point: output 172
input 136

it should look like this:

Next layer > new fill layer > solid color with #ce2dd4 , set it to multiply 8%.

Then another fill layer with #410e0e , set it to exclusion 50%.

And voilá you're done! if the outcome is too dark, duplicate the base and set the duplicate to screen. :)

other exsamples in icon-size:

you can take the icons if you want. :D

The second point won't let me put the input as 42, it says the lowest input I can have is 46. =/
